I just wish there was something I could personally do about this corruption instead of just sitting around, talking and worrying about it

I realize how much consumerism has degraded our society. I'm dwelling on that thought as I have had a pair of my little ones socks sitting next to the computer since yesterday afternoon. They have a hole about the size of a dime. Society tells me that I should throw them away (they were only $2 for the pair) and buy a new pair. Is today going to be the day that I darn a pair of socks for the first time in my life? I don't know yet, but I do know many people would think me crazy because 'people just don't have to do that anymore'. Why not, I ask?
I think this will be a quiet revolution that happens one person at a time in turn making another person aware. We didn't get to the messed up place we're in overnight and it won't be overnight that we crawl out.
